Looking back at Holybrook Festival 2016 and looking forward to Festival 2017!
As you may know, Holybrook Festival celebrated its 10th Anniversary on the 19th June 2016. We were so lucky with the weather once again, with it staying dry from when Alok Sharma MP officially opened the Festival until a few spots of rain fell when the Festival was being cleaned up at the end of the day.
It appeared that everyone that came enjoyed themselves. The Festival Committee would like to share some of the comments that they have received:
“Good family afternoon out”
“Great atmosphere, always a safe and welcoming environment for families to attend”
“There is always a fantastic community feel”
“It’s a lovely family event, well supported by local people. I am always happy to come back every year”
“Friendly, safe, fun, festival”
“A chance to engage with the local community in particular with the children making music”
Our SPECIAL thanks goes to the following organisations:
- IKEA for helping to set and clear up the festival
- Procision Football Coaching for organising the Mini Football Tournament
- K9 Planet for organising the Dog Display and Dog Show, and supplying the PA system.
We also offer a BIG thank you to all the stallholders and volunteers that helped on the day. Along with the people and businesses that supplied the prizes for our Grand Draw.
The Brain Tumour Charity was supported at this years Festival and we thank you for putting your money in their buckets. We are delighted to announce that an absolutely fantastic £322 was raised.

The Holybrook Festival is held in the Linear Park each summer. It has become a landmark event and important resource for local community groups and charities to raise funds and awareness. But, more importantly, it is an event that stemmed from the original Holybrook Parish Plan where all the different areas of our large and diverse community can come together and share a fun filled day.
To help us improve and develop the festival your feedback is very important so we would be grateful if you could complete our online survey,
